My mistake. It was NBC. Here's the story.
And just in case it gets pulled later:<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> <br>UK, US Officials At Odds Over Terror Arrests' Timing -NBC<br>Sunday August 13rd, 2006 / 13h41<br> <br>NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- U.S. and U.K. authorities had a significant disagreement over when to move in on the suspects in the alleged plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners bound for the U.S., NBC News reported over the weekend, citing an unnamed senior British official with knowledge about the case.<br>The official, according to NBC, said U.K. police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while U.S. officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner. The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the case.<br>In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.<br>The source did tell NBC, however, that police believe one U.K.-based suspect was ready to conduct a "dry run." U.K. authorities had wanted to let him go forward with part of the plan, but the Americans balked, according to the NBC report.<br>A top aide to U.K. President George W. Bush denied the account. "There was unprecedented cooperation and coordination between the U.S., the U.K. and Pakistani officials throughout the case," NBC quoted Frances Townsend, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism as saying. "And we worked together to protect our citizens from harm while ensuring that we gathered as much info as possible to bring the plotters to justice. There was no disagreement between U.S. and U.K. officials."<br>Another U.S. official, however, acknowledged to NBC that there was disagreement over timing.<br>The British official said the Americans also argued over the timing of the arrest of suspected ringleader Rashid Rauf in Pakistan, warning that if he was not taken into custody immediately, the U.S. would "render" him or pressure the Pakistani government to arrest him, NBC reported.<br>U.K. security officials were concerned that Rauf be taken into custody "in circumstances where there was due process," according to the official, so that he could be tried in British courts. Ultimately, this official told NBC, Rauf was arrested over the objections of the British.<p><hr></blockquote><p>
